Re: Signing a jar for IE5 running on MAC OS 9.x

The problem is that OS 9.x uses jdk 1.1.8 instead of jdk 1.3
as it is the case in OS X. The signing mechanism changed with jdk1.2, so you have to sign your jar differently
for the old MAC. The problem now is however that the
signing tool in jdk1.1.8 which is called "javakey"
does not support chaining of certificates. This in turn
means that you are forced to use a self-signed certificate,
since your certificate cannot be signed by a CA.
